As you can see from this photo, Pierre is now an old hand at baby food reviewing ! He immediately rose to the challenge when I offered him our latest products for review, a couple of packets of baby cookies from Ella's Kitchen's Organic Baby Snacks range. They are stage 2 so are suitable for babies from the age of 7 months.
Pierre started off trying to attack one with a spoon but soon worked out that he wasn't getting anywhere so he picked it up with his fingers and had a nibble. The packaging says that these biscuits are "munchy not crunchy soft biscuits for babies". I wasn't sure what that meant but on the website, they explain : "Our soft and crumbly baby cookies are perfect for weaning babies of 7 months or more who are waiting for their first teeth to properly pop through ! They contain the goodness of simple ingredients, gently baked to give just the right texture – firm enough for little fingers to hold, yet soft enough to melt in little mouths !"
As you can see from this picture, Pierre loved them. He tried two varieties, milk 'n' vanilla and apple 'n' ginger, and they both got the thumbs up. Each box contains twelve biscuits and they are handily packaged in little sachets of two biscuits, which are ideal for stashing in your handbag or pocket as a snack on the go.
As with all Ella's Kitchen products, they bear the Soil Association Organic logo and promise to contain no hidden nasties. Paul Lindley, who created the company, explains : "Ella is my eleven-year-old daughter and I set up Ella's Kitchen because I passionately believe that she, along with her generation, should have the opportunity to eat better food and also to discover that healthy food can be fun, tasty and cool. We think it's important to always approach things from a child's point of view. So, we've taken simple, natural ingredients that ooze goodness and created baby foods, and packaging, that should really connect with kids - with flavours, colours, textures and even names that will appeal to all of their senses."
They promise to add no sugar, salt, E-numbers, GM products or anything that has no nutritional or health value. Even so, they manage to create delicious food that babies and kids love. I don't know how they do it but I'm so glad they do !
